Abstract

Preventing pressure ulcer is one of important aims in nursing. Our project has tried to estimate and reduce the risk of pressure ulcer using the sheet-type pressure sensor. However, we found a problem that body-pressure dispersion cushions interfere with accurate sensing when the previous experiment in nursing institute. A garment-type pressure sensor proposed in this paper successfully detected body-pressure changes regardless cushion replacement as the sensor could classify more accurate score in the classification task of postures using both of sensors.
